The business world’s products and services are integrally involved in our everyday lives. Whether it is going to the store to buy groceries, surfing the internet, or playing basketball in the gym, commerce touches all of us. We hope to see the Christian business community work together to co-create innovative business and strategic approaches to not only bring value to communities through product and service offerings, but also to address some of the greatest problems of today in global development.
One cannot talk about the world without the mention of the global health crisis. Today, millions of people die all over the world because of diseases that are both preventable and treatable. Throughout the Scriptures Jesus used miraculous healings to display his compassion and love for people. Christian health professional have the opportunity to express the love and care of Christ in a tangible manner to the world, helping those who do not have access to appropriate healthcare treatment and educating the masses of global health needs.
There was a time in history where some of the greatest music and art came from the Church, from people who had a high view of God. Christian artists can use their creative talents to develop works and pieces in various outlets and media to reflect the excellence and greatness of God to the world.
If the Church is indeed the hope of the world, it is critical that those watching over it are properly trained and equipped to lead it. We hope that pastors and leaders within the Church will be able to lead effectively to shine the light of Christ to the community and the world.
Government laws, policies, and programs influence the lives of millions with countries and cities. Unfortunately, in many cases around the world, there are abuses of power and widespread corruption. We hope that Christian legal and governmental professionals will use their influence to administer justice in a world where many are without advocates.
Many of the global social problems are related to a lack of appropriate education. Issues such as poor or underfunded programs in inner cities, educational policy breakdowns, and a lack of educational access all contribute to these problems. Christian educators can find ways to impact the lives of many by addressing and finding solutions to these causes leading to poor education.
The family is a critical component to the social makeup of any community. We hope to redeem the family institution by teaching biblical truths on subjects such as parenting, marriage, and biblical roles. God centered families are an incredible witness of the love of Christ to a world in much need.
